The origin of high -quality cocoa cocoa
Step back in time and go on a journey to the mysterious origin of high quality ceremonial cocoa, where ancient civilizations such as the Maya's and Aztecs worshiped this holy plant as a divine elixir. These cultures recognized the profound spiritual and cultural significance of cocoa and made it an integral part of their rituals and ceremonies.
In the heart of the Mayan civilization, cocoa was considered a gift from the gods. It was so honored that it was often called "the food of the gods" and it was believed that it had been discovered by the divine beings themselves. Cocoa ceremonies were a way for the Maya to make contact with the divine, and thus bridge the gap between the mortal world and the spiritual world.
In the same way, the Aztecs had a great appreciation for cocoa and associated it with their deity of fertility and abundance, Quetzalcoatl. Cacao was considered so high that it was used as both a currency and a ceremonial sacrifice during important rituals and celebrations. The Aztecs believed that consuming cocoa would give them strength and wisdom, so that they could come into contact with the spiritual world.
Rituals around cocoa in these old civilizations were complex and deep -rooted in their faith systems. Cocoa ceremonies were seen as a bridge to communicate with ancestors, gods and the natural world. They were performed with the greatest respect and often worshiped prayers, songs, dancing and sacrifices.
Today, the old traditions of high -quality ceremonial cocoa continue to fascinate and inspire people who are looking for a spiritual and transforming experience.
At When Nature Calls we are proud of having herbal cacao of high quality in stock, from around 400 different indigenous Mayan family farmers from southern Balme, specifically from the Maya Mountains. These family farmers, belonging to the Mopan and Q'eqchi Maya nations, have been growing the old native Criollo variety of cocoa on their holy grounds for generations. The cocoa tree, known locally as "Cucu" by the Maya Q'eqchi nation, is considered a holy tree for the native Maya population.
Hidden in the least developed and most rural area of Belize (see photo below), the Maya Mountains offer the perfect conditions for cocoa to thrive. The cocoa trees naturally grow in the midst of the biodiversity of the region, surrounded by other local banana, avocado, coconut, cashew and vanilla trees. This harmonious environment gives unique flavors and aromas to the cocoa, which strengthens the ceremonial qualities.
The process of growing cocoa is not only an agricultural affair; It is a spiritual effort for the Mayan family farmers. Every time a new cocoa tree is planted, a ceremony is held and the local Mayan-spiritual leader or older permission asks for the energies of existence and abundance of good quality cocoa beans. This deep respect for the country and holiness of the cocoa tree penetrates every bean with ancestral wisdom and spiritual meaning.
